Maybe our opponents feel the same way.
Tonight we start the Winter Season with a game against The Ultimate Volleyball Team at BMO. Let's get this season started with a big win against one of the other top-ranked teams.
To be honest, when I think of the Ultimate Volleyball Team, the first thing that comes to mind is Super Spike V'Ball, which I played a lot in my Nintendo years. My "team" was definitely the real Ultimate Volleyball team, as I ruled that game. I still remember my friend Shawn cheering me on as I beat the USSR to win the World Cup. It was one of the games that was usually in my rotation; games like Ice Hockey, Tetris, Contra and Baseball. I played V'ball so much that I changed the game lengths so it was a game of 5; after awhile I thought it was unnecessary to continually beat the teams 15-0.
I usually chose to play as the "tough" team, as they almost had the biggest spikes. That they were the worst defenders didn't matter...it was always fun to kaboom the crap out of all the teams. An excellent way to relieve stress. Oh Mr. McGee, you thought a pop quiz today would be fun...? KABOOM!!
Now that I think of it, it kinda makes me want to pull out my NES and take on the World Cup. You think it's okay to play like a jackass at your rec floor hockey game? KABOOM!!
So what does all of this have to do with the team we're playing at BMO. Uh...nothing.
In the Fall I think they competed in the Tuesday 5's League, which means they could be rusty if they haven't had a good run since December. I also played against them with I'm Idahucker in the Summer, a game with we won 17-8, so take that for what it's worth.
